Drug and alcohol addiction is a serious problem that can affect anyone. Across Scotland, tens of thousands of people are struggling with addiction. Many are in denial about their problems and others feel as if they are alone with their struggles.

This is not the case.

The first step to beating addiction is admitting you are in its clutches. If you or someone you know is showing signs and symptoms of addiction then you must seek professional help as soon as possible. Drug addiction and consuming vast amounts of alcohol can destroy your health, livelihood and relationships before you know it. Only through confronting your issues head-on can you achieve long-term recovery.

What Should I Take to Rehab?

A common question/worry with incoming clients surrounds what to take to rehab. As most rehab programmes last on average 28 days, it is a legitimate concern and you need to be well prepared for the next month of your life.

Different facilities have different rules when it comes to what you can and can’t bring with you. To avoid any sticky moments, it is best to ask this question during the admissions process. Our team is there to alleviate your worries so there’s no need to feel silly for asking.

Ensure you bring comfortable clothes and shoes, suitable for indoor and outdoor activities. There’s no need to bring a month’s worth as there are washing facilities on site. Be sure to bring any prescribed medication you will need, toiletries and reading and writing material.

Writing materials are key for your therapy activities and investing in self-help books around the subject of addiction will be a great resource during this time.

There will also be rules regarding mobile phones and laptops. The focus of rehab should be on recovery and ridding yourself of distractions produces the best results. At points during your stay there are opportunities for your family to visit, so you won’t be completely cut off from the outside world.


Treatment at Nova Recovery

Our holistic approach to addiction treatment means that both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction will be dealt with.

First off, you will take part in a detoxification programme. This is the process by which we end your physical dependence on drugs and alcohol by weaning you off the harmful substances. Drug detox and alcohol detox equally bring distressing withdrawal symptoms that can be dangerous if faced alone. At Nova Recovery, we employ a medically assisted detox, administering you with medication to ease the worst of withdrawal symptoms.

This process can last up to a week – during this time you will be monitored and cared for by our staff to ensure you are as comfortable as you can be.

Once detox has been completed you will begin therapy sessions. Through a combination of individual therapies, group work and wellbeing therapies you will delve deeper into your addiction issues and find ways to improve your situation. Talking therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and group therapy will help you figure out what your triggers are and better hone your coping and problem-solving skills.

At the core of our principles is your mental health. Issues of addiction and mental health can be closely entwined – each dealt without causing more issues. We at Nova Recovery understand this and offer dual diagnosis treatment to help you deal with concurrent mental health and addiction issues.

Through careful treatment, we can help you heal your mind and body – giving you the chance to live a fulfilling, substance-free life.


Remaining Sober After Rehab

The looming threat of relapse can play on the mind of many people that leave rehab. As you exit our doors you may feel overwhelmed and stressed, questioning if you can cope without the safety net of rehab.

To help you during this time, Nova Recovery offers a free 12-month aftercare package to guide you through that initial period. Through weekly support meetings, you can connect with fellow recovery addicts and build a support network. This is vital during tough times when relapse may be just over the horizon.

As most recovering addicts turn back to substances during the first year out of rehab, seriously engaging with aftercare and making the most of the resources at hand is the best method of relapse prevention.
